question for Hammond SK1 owners


I've watched several youtube vids of this item being demo'd online.
I'm impressed re the basic Hammond/Leslie sound.
But here's a question....
Can it do the overdrive Jon Lord Deep Purple sound out of the box, or do I need to add stuff or find a dark wizard or something in order to get the deep-overdrive-growl sound?
NOTE: It doesn't have to be *perfect. I'm not a performer, just a guy who likes to have some fun at home.
Also... if the SK1 isn't up to it, what about the XK-3c?

A lot of keyboards have a rendition of that sound, with patch names such as Lord's B, Purple Hammond, and the like.
